Representative Text

1 For Christ our Prince and Saviour,
For truth and holiness,
We wage a constant warfare,
And onward boldly press;
We brave the sternest conflict,
By conscious strength inspired,
Our hearts by fear unshaken,
Our souls by courage fired.

2 The war we wage is bloodless,
We fight not to destroy,
The motto on our banner,
Is “Pardon, Peace, and Joy;”
We strive to free the captive,
Now held by sin a slave,
To cheer the faint and hopeless,
And make the trembling brave.

3 But Christ hath all the honor,
‘Tis He that makes us strong,
The trophies of each conquest,
To Him alone belong;
And his shall be the triumph,
The glory and renown,
And His the praise exulting,
And His the victor’s crown.
